On Wednesday, it was reported that Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff was in the medical facility at a federal prison in Butner, NC—and one TV station heard that Madoff's injuries were consistent with an assault. However, the Bureau of Prisons said he was being treated for dizziness and hypertension.

An ABC affiliate WTVD initially heard that Madoff "had facial fractures, broken ribs and a collapsed lung " and was released from Duke's medical center. But a Duke spokesperson told the Daily News "no one by the name of Bernard Madoff has been treated at the university hospital in the past week." And Madoff's lawyer Ira Sorkin said, "The Bureau of Prisons said that report was not accurate. Indeed, Mr. Madoff was treated for dizzy spells and high blood pressure. That's all I'm going to say."

Now a WTVD source says that Madoff fell out of bed and that there was a lot of facial bleeding (it's unclear if he's still been sleeping on the bottom bunk). Apparently Madoff has suffered from high blood pressure for a while—running a multibillion Ponzi scheme was stressful!
